KIRKUS REVIEW

An off-the-books anti-terrorist task force travels to Israel to pursue an international arms dealer and help old friends in the process.

With his experience as an officer in the U.S. Army's Special Forces, Taylor (Ring of Fire, 2016, etc.) brings firsthand military knowledge to the Nephilim “Pike” Logan series. While walking through the Venetian casino in Las Vegas, Logan and fellow Taskforce member Knuckles pick their way through a throng of want-to-be commandos attending the largest gun show on Earth until their boss, Kurt Hale, calls them to go operational. Even by the unconventional standards of the Taskforce, this mission is noticeably different. Without an official mandate, Hale has made a gut decision to have his team track a former U.S. Marine–turned–arms dealer. Logan and his girlfriend/business partner/fellow Taskforce member, Jennifer, follow their target to Israel, where they attempt to reconnect with old friends Aaron and Shoshana, both of whom are former Mossad operatives. However, a jubilant reunion is delayed because Aaron was captured while in the midst of investigating an international plot which could result in damaging the reputation of the highly respected Israeli diamond exchange and causing a military coup in a small African country. Aaron’s captors didn't realize that Shoshana would do anything to get him back and they had no idea that she may be one of the world’s most effective assassins. Throw into the mix the return of Johan van Rensburg, a former member of the legendary South African Reconnaissance Commandos–turned–soldier of fortune, and you have the ideal stage for Logan and Shoshana, both extremely component with their deadly skill sets, to showcase a trail of destruction.

A believable account of elite operators working outside traditional government parameters to track international villains.
